What happened to Kadi Burgess of Nazareth? I don't see her name on the roster.

Jen Kroll's St. Lawrence team will be playing Ithaca tomorrow.  It will probably be strange for her competing against Ithaca where she used to coach!

I can't believe that no one is talking about St. John Fisher.  They are only one of 3 unbeaten teams left in DIII women's hoop!  Are there any Cardinal fans who are willing to tell me about this team?  I'm listening to WYSL's coverage of the game vs. Hartwick right now, and I can't believe that there hasn't been much chatter in this room, at least about this team.

Congratulations to the Hartwick Hawks!

They pull off the upset today at St. John Fisher in Empire 8 action, knocking off the Cardinals from the ranks of the unbeaten.

Final score:  Hartwick 69, St. John Fisher 59

Hartwick takes the conference lead by 1/2 game in the Empire 8.

First set of NCAA Regional Rankings out for 2005:
1)NYU
2)St. John Fisher
3)Oswego
4)Union
5)Cortland
6)Ithaca

Seems about right, it's only the first rankings so it doesn't really matter but I might replace Cortland with Brockport, better conf. record, head to head win, and BPort started its season with a 2 point loss at an excellent Emmanuel squad that beat Bowdoin. Come to think of it, I'd definitely replace Cortland with Brockport.

Brockport's game against Emmanuel is an out-of-region game that cannot be used in making the regional rankings, unfortunately.

Compare Cortland's SOSI with Brockport's SOSI, and you might get a better idea of why Cortland is ranked ahead of Brockport.  Cortland and Ithaca have to get the automatic bids to make the NCAAs, however, as their regional records do not indicate that they would get Pool C bids.  (If both teams lose in their conference tournaments, that is at least 1 additional loss on their regional records.)

regional rankings as of 2/9

1)Oswego
2)NYU
3)St. John Fisher
4)Cortland
5)Ithaca
6)Union

Oswego has a toughie on Saturday at Oneonta, while on the same day Ithaca is at Fisher in a game that will likely decide who hosts the E8 tournament. Good luck to Coach Raymond and the IC ladies.

What happened to Elmira?  Their coach had them going in the right direction, and then they had a worse season than last year.  Is it a matter of one step back to take two steps forward?

It is time to find out who is in... and who is out.
Whose bubble has been burst and who is wearing Cinderella's glass slippers.
It's Selection Sunday... and tonight there will be a special "Hoopsville" as the 2005 NCAA Men's and Women's Basketball Brackets are announced... LIVE on our air!
The Road to Salem and Virginia Beach officially starts tonight!


It plans to be a huge night... as 50 womens and 48 mens teams are officially invited to the dance and a chance at a national title.

Some teams already know they are going (thanks to winning their conferences) and some think they are going, but there are always surprises.

So tonight, we will break it all down. Starting at 8:30 PM EST, we will take a look at who is definitely in, who might make it, who will be disappointed, and what match-ups you might want to look forward to seeing later in the week.

Then at 10:00 PM EST... we will broadcast LIVE the Women's Selection Show so you can find out when we do... the 50 teams on the Road to Virginia Beach.

That will be followed by the Men's Selection Show at 10:30 PM EST - when 48 teams find out what their Road to Salem will be like.

After those selections... we will go over it with a fine-tooth comb and find out who we think are the surprises!

And throughout the show, we will hear from different regions with live reports and talk to coaches that have made surprising moves into the tournament.

Of course, you can listen in thank to Goucher College.
We suggest you try and use the low-bandwith signal which will require you to have Real Player and selection the 28K version of the show.
At the same time, you can listen to the Broadcastmonsters.com version, using Windows Media Player (go to the "Hoopsville" page for more information).

And you can share your opinions and questions with us, live on the air.
email - hoopsville@d3hoops.com  
AOL IM - Hoopsville2000

And for more information... check out the "Hoopsville" website (www.d3hoops.com/hoopsville)!

Again... it all starts tonight at 8:30 PM EST.

Since nobody else seems to care (which is a damn shame) I will have to be the first on this board to congratulate the Ithaca Bombers on defending the E8 title and making the dance for the fifth year in a row. Way to go, ladies, go far in the NCAAs.

It's time for the Big Dance... the teams are selected... the games are scheduled... and now 48 men's and 50 women's teams will take to the court this weekend with the same goal... a national title.
But who will win? The tournament previews are tonight on "Hoopsville"!!!


Sunday night we were live when the teams were selected and we found out who was in and out. The women's bracket was done relatively well... the men's bracket seems to be a bit of a disappointment.

But now we are looking ahead at the big games this weekend. From now on its win or go home.

One of those men's teams that is one of the hottest in the nation is #17 Gustavus Adulphus... who is riding an 18-game winning streak into the NCAA Tournament. The Gusties now will take on Lawrence on Thursday and could face the defending National Champs, UW-Stevens Point on Saturday. So, what might Mark Hanson be thinking. We will hear from him tonight and how his team has recovered from their 4-5 start to the season.

Now... the NCAA doesn't seed the Men's and Women's Brackets... but we will!
Tonight, live on the air, we will seed the men's and women's brackets according to how we see it and how we think the NCAA was thinking. So you can get an idea of who the NCAA thinks are the top teams and who might be hosting games in the Sweet 16 and Elite 8 (Regionals).

And there are new #1 teams in both the Men's and Women's Top-25 this week... but barely. UW-Stevens Point is just points ahead of Amherst on the men's side. And on the women's, it is just a point between Scranton and Bowdoin.

We will breakdown the final regular season Top-25 and try and figure out what the voters were thinking. Along with pointing out how not all of the Top-25 made the tournament.

And of course, we will have live regional reports from around the nation and take your questions and comments live on the air.

So come join us online and LIVE from 8PM - 10PM Eastern!

"Hoopsville": only place where you can listen or chat about Division III Basketball in the nation.

Go to the "Hoopsville" page for information on how you can listen in and chat with us live!

Let me be the second to congratulate the Ithaca Bombers on their FIFTH straight trip to the NCAA Tournament and yet another Empire 8 Championship! You ladies have asserted your dominance in the conference year after year. Congratulations to this year's seniors. Even during the struggles of the early season we knew it was only a matter of time before things came together. The Bombers are peaking at the perfect time. Here's hoping Stephanie Cleary garners at least SOME consideration for National Player of the Year.
